Research Interests

I am an applied economist with primary research interests in Labor Economics, and International Economics. My secondary research fields are Urban and Regional Economies, Development Economics, and Applied Econometrics. My job market paper examines the economic consequences of a skill-based US immigration reform from a global general equilibrium perspective. I am also working on a variety of topics including China’s export growth, labor allocation across occupations, the trade adjustments to immigration, regional economies and low-skill immigration to the US.
